Would You Wear (Extreme) Flared Pants?

Just as we all started to get comfortable in our skinny pants, a new silhouette is officially taking over the runway. And it's straight out of the '70

Just as we all started to get comfortable in our skinny pants, a new silhouette is officially taking over the runway. And it's straight out of the '70s. We first started to think about flares way back during the Spring 08 shows when we saw them on Stam at Gianfranco Ferre, and in crazy colors and plaid at Prada. Then, Fall 08 brought a steady stream of super wide-leg pants, and now, even Chanel's show for Resort included a pair. But how did this happen? We haven't thought this look was cute since we saw it in pictures of our moms from before we were even born. And are they practical? Unless you've got Nadja-length legs, tall shoes are an absolute must, and even then, that's still just a lot of material to walk around in without collecting street dirt on your way. So what do you think, a cute look that deserves a second try? Or too hideous for thought? --KYLE HAYES
